We got a great rate on hot-wire. This hotel is right in the middle of he historic district, there are numerous shops and restaurants right outside the entrance. The rooms are basic, clean and the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms have been updated. There is a very good breakfast included. Great value for a inexpensive price!

What a great little find! Based on the pictures on Expedia and Priceline, I was afraid that this would be a very dated hotel. Instead, I found it to be very charming and more of a historic feel to the Hotel. The location couldn't be beat!

Four of us stayed here over the NewYear'sEve wked for the 3rd time in the last four years. Obviously we are pleased on the counts with this facility: location, value, staff, and appearance. The Inn is well maintained, and lobby area warm and welcoming with holiday deorations. Numerous shops, restaurants, "pubs", and some civil war sights, all within easy walking... More

1 stay each year (2009,10,&11). Only disapointment was to find the lounge was discontinued shortly after our "09" stay. Very close to other bars, but not just downstairs. Otherwise top notch in my book. CLEAN,LOCATION,POOL,FREE BREAKFAST (not just any continental),PARKING, INTERNET& EXCELLENT STAFF . In the heart of it all,walk to anything you want or need. Maybe not the cheapest... More

Another great weekend in Gettysburg at the 1863 Inn. There are so many reasons why we love this place so much...the friendly staff from front desk to housekeeping, the rooms and grounds are immaculate and the location is perfect. We always feel so comfortable at the 1863. The staff is so accommodating and helpful. When we travel with our dog,... More

Great location near Cemetery Ridge & the National Military Park & Visitor Center. Plenty of free parking. Rooms are entered from outside like a motel. Seems like it was built in the 1960s or 70s, but it is in good condition & the rooms are modern & clean. While a good continental breakfast was included, I would have preferred a... More
